Redefining Ready! Initiative

Redefining Ready header 2019 We are grateful for the sponsorship of our generous partners which help make these meetings possible.

Redefining Ready! is a national initiative launched by AASA, The School Superintendents Association, to introduce new research-based metrics to more appropriately assess that students are college ready, career ready and life ready. The initiative is a response to dismal college and career readiness scores reported by standardized test makers that fail to portray a comprehensive picture of student potential. Learn more about the new college and career readiness indicators and join our national campaign to help school districts and systems across the nation continue Redefining Ready!

AASA is pleased to invite you to become a member of the 2019-20 Redefining Ready! Cohort.
